Homeschool Life…..SO not what I expected.

Homeschool Update 4

Homeschooling the boys has been really fun, although not what I expected..

Our ‘before’ schedule looked like this… HAHA! I literally laugh when I look at it now. Oh, I had no idea… And here’s our ‘after’ (realistic) schedule that we have now… Now, {Read More}
